It's been one of those Mondays in which I've been working all day (well, except for a lunchtime shopping trip) but have finished almost nothing, so, with my apologies for a rather light post I'll share just a few interesting items
The first is this lovely animation, taken by an apparently daydreaming Opportunity rover, of cirrus clouds drifting across the sky...The second is one of my favorite scientists, John Spencer, speaking on this week's Planetary Radio about what Cassini found during its recent plunge past Enceladus (and make sure you read the story I wrote last week about the recent flyby, if you haven't already)...
Mike Brown's blog contains an interesting perspective into a day in the life of an astronomer working on one of the world's great telescopes, the Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea...
And I added a few more future missions to our long list of lunar explorers.
